TONY KUBEK NEW YORK YANKEE AUTOGRAPHED OFFICIAL MLB RAWLINGS BASEBALL CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY FROM BIG RALLY & T&A SPORTS SEE PHOTO OF TONY SIGNING BASEBALLS. On December 9, 2008, Tony Kubek won the 2009 Ford C. Frick Award, an honor bestowed on broadcasters by the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This baseball was hand signed by New York Yankees Tony Kubek in blue pen. Anthony Christopher Kubek (born October 12, 1936, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a retired American baseball player and television broadcaster. A left-handed batter, Kubek signed his first professional contract with the New York Yankees and rose rapidly through the Yanks' farm system. He was 20 years of age when he played his first game in Major League Baseball in 1957, and — except for one year (1962) spent largely in the U.S. military — remained with the Yankees until his retirement due to a back injury at the close of the 1965 season. Upon his retirement, Kubek became a color commentator on NBC's Saturday Game of the Week telecasts. He spent 24 years at the network, teaming with play-by-play announcers such as Jim Simpson, Curt Gowdy (whom Kubek called his favorite partner), Joe Garagiola and Bob Costas.
